Pac-12 Networks Announce Early Schedule Games

The Pac-12 networks will kick off its initial college football season by broadcasting 15 games in the first three weeks of the 2012-2013 season. Furthermore, the Pac-12 networks will broadcast at least one game from every one of the members in the conference during the first four weeks.

It is the first season of the Pac-12 network, which will officially launch in July and will feature exclusive broadcasts of Pac-12 athletics. Part of the groundbreaking media deal, made by commissioner Larry Scott, for the Pac-12 includes games broadcast with Fox Sports and ESPN.

There are plenty of storylines in the second season of the Pac-12 with USC, Oregon and Stanford ranked in the top-25, a newly renovated stadium (Washington) and four new head coaches in the conference (Leach, Rodriguez, Mora and Graham). The Pac-12 networks will have plenty to talk about this season that will interest college football fans all around the country.

The first ever game broadcast by the new network will be Northern Colorado visiting Utah. It’s another cool moment for Utah as they were featured in the first ever Pac-12 conference game last season against USC.
